Opportunities

Transformations: Exploring the History of Science and Gender

A group of humanities researchers interested in the history of gender and sexuality, artist Jason Barker and young people from Gendered Intelligence are producing a new performance and exhibition related to trans history and the history of sexual science. To develop the performance and exhibition, they are seeking to capture the voices of different trans and gender diverse people. They would like to collaborate with you by interviewing you about your life by one of our young members at Gendered Intelligence.

These interviews will be conducted by young trans and gender diverse people (16-25 years old). The interviews will take place on 6th and 8th July in Weston Super-mare and it should be possible to work together to organise slots. It will take between 1-2 hours.

There’s a possibility to stay over the night before if that helps with travel. The project will pay for all travel expenses, and refreshments will be provided.

If you are at all interested, contact Jay Stewart at Gendered Intelligence for further information: jay.stewart@genderedintelligence.co.uk
